  1. It was amusing seeing a handful of Oakland’s starters put back in the game during the 4th quarter last night.

    Also noticed the Seahawks had most of their starters in until the half. The reigning world champs, who probably have their roster set, played against a team who got into the playoffs by the skin of their teeth, and whose roster spots are still very much in flux needed a full half “just to make sure”?

  3. O’Brian Schofield who wasn’t good enough for the Giants(guffaw) is battling for good time on the best d in the biz? Giants are crazy.

    I would be embarrassed if my team was such a poor judge of talent, that it tried to replace a young, cheap, talented McLovin with a pick-6-machine and a Carr brother.
